The Master of Global Leadership and Management degree is offered in this location:
The Master of Global Leadership and Management (MGLM) graduate program will develop leaders with global perspective, cross-cultural business skills and social responsibility. It is committed to teaching major competencies in leadership, ethics and complex business skills which are critical for gaining sustainable competitive advantage in a global business environment. Students in the Global Leadership program will analyze the impact of globalization on domestic businesses and consider successful practices of meeting the challenges of global business leadership and management. The MGLM graduate degree is designed for business people who are challenged with growing worldwide competition and the necessity to deal effectively with the international business issues.
Classes meet one night per week, usually from 6 to 10 p.m. for 24 months.
Short-term Study Abroad Experience
Students enrolled in the MGLM begin working on their Special Project MGMT 691 early in the program. During the last course in the program, students will participate in a short-term study abroad experience traveling to a foreign country for 5-7 days as a group to experience working in a practical business environment at the international level. Supervised by the program director and a faculty member, the study abroad experience presents a valuable opportunity to benchmark results of student academic research against a real life global business environment. The Special Project allows students to compare concepts of global supply chain, business negotiations, managerial decision making, ethics, and many others learned in the master's program, with their implementation in a foreign company thus preparing students to be efficient and competitive in the global market.
